Double-quote iconMr. Hurkmans' reverse IPO, involving one of my communications technology companies, merged with a small publicly-listed company, in a brief transaction which enhanced our visibility and valuation, and created exactly what I needed, when I needed it. Only Tom could have conjured up such an unusual approach!

Neal G. Taylor, Esq. C-level Executive, Change Agent and Entrepreneur

Double-quote iconMr. Hurkmans planted a seed with me and our senior management that resonated for several years, and culminated in the combination of our small utility with a much larger utility, using the strongest asset we had (but the hardest to understand), as a business transaction fulcrum. We are indebted to his insight and foresight.

Terry F. Steinbecker, President & CEO, St. Joseph Light & Power Company

Double-quote iconMr. Hurkmans was dogged in his determination to get the best deal possible for his client. He was, at times, a PIA to negotiate with, but he was a most worthy counter-party. The company he sold us worked out very well. All is well that ends well - so his client benefitted from his PIA distinction!

Richard Heckmann, Founder & CEO, U.S. Filter Corp.
